Parents Coffee Chat
An informal group meets every Sunday morning in the Satterlee Hall library--parents of school-aged children. While the kids are in Sunday school, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., their parents are able to spend time together, getting to know each other, exchanging advice and forming community. All are welcome.
Every month or two, from late fall to early summer, several groups of about 8-10 people each gather to dine and enjoy each other’s company. These gatherings are devoted to getting to know each other and having fun together. Each time, a different member of the group acts as host to their group. New Foyers groups form in September. For more information, contact:

The “Downtown Workers” group meets for lunch with the Priest-in-Charge to discuss issues in the workplace. Space is quite limited, so email John Daniel Reaves if you wish to attend. The luncheons convene at the Tabard Inn (1739 N St NW) almost-monthly. Designed for participants to discuss in confidence issues that are present in their work lives and to offer spiritual guidance.
The Older Wiser Laity (OWLs) is a group whose purpose is to foster a sense of belonging for parishioners through annual fellowship events. OWL’s events typically include an elegant lunch and a high-quality program speaker. Transportation to and from OWLs events is available for parishioners no longer able to drive. To become a member of the Older Wiser Laity at St. Alban’s or to be placed on the OWLs mailing list to receive notifications of upcoming events, please contact the Rev. Jim Quigley, (202) 363-8286.
